It goes without say that bloggers like us, who spend half (or more) of our time online every day, are highly at risk of having our laptops or desktops exposed to spam mails, adware, malware and virus attacks. These threats not only can ruin our computers, they can also pose a high security risk for those who shop online. Given the prevalence of these online threats, an antivirus program is undeniably the best safeguard measure to minimize such dangers. However, choosing the right software can be a tough decision as there are so many softwares by different vendors that claims to be the best. Thus, when approached by AVG Technologies to review their AVG Internet Security 9.0 Software, we quickly jumped at the chance. As AVG Free is the #1 download on CNET at 277 million, it was a wonderful opportunity to test drive their premium version of the software.
About AVG Internet Security 9.0:
AVG Internet Security 9.0 is a security suite intended to provide comprehensive threat protection and prevention for home and small business computer users. It addresses traditional threats such as viruses, spam, spyware, and Trojans as well as newer threats including identity stealing malware, web exploits, drive-by phishing, and rootkits.

Since its first introduction in the fall of 2006, AVG Internet Security has won accolades from users and reviewers alike for its low resource requirements, excellent security protection and unobtrusive operation. AVG Internet Security 8.5 took these benefits a major step further by adding identity theft prevention in the form of AVG Identity Protection, using the behavioral technology AVG acquired with the Sana Security acquisition in November 2008. AVG Internet Security 9.0 features tighter integration for more enhanced security. Designed for novice and experienced users alike, AVG provides great protection out of the box for less-experienced users without the need for any configuration while also providing extensive granular configuration options for more advanced users.

3 Boys And A Dog – My favorite part is the ease of use. Some virus programs make it nearly impossible to access ANYTHING on the web, connected to your computer, etc. With a simple click, I can save the settings to allow something (like my HP printer) to make changes. Plus, it is all in terms even I can understand!
Nugglemama’s Handful – After playing around with it a bit I discovered how very easy it was to use. Installation was quick and painless and within minutes my system was protected. On set up it runs an optimization scan which helps future scans be faster after this you have the option to run a virus scan. Always a must when installing new Antivirus.
Brain Foggles – Once you set up AVG, you’re good to go. It updates automatically, warns you of threats and scans on schedule. AVG does not take away from the speed of your computer while scanning. It can save you a great deal of money by keeping your computer safe.
This Little Family – After getting all of the software installed – which was remarkable easy – it started up and I then started playing around with it. The very first thing I noticed was how user it friendly it is. There’s no guessing and wondering if you are in the right spot. Everything is very clear, concise, and easy to find.
Fab Find Foodie – I can honestly say, I am incredibly happy with AVG Internet Security Software 9.0. There is nothing confusing or complicated about using the software. Knowing that I no longer have to worry about identity theft, spam or viruses truly makes my life a heck of a lot less stressful! Now I can feel secure logging into my bank account and not have to worry about being vulnerable. Plus, having such a public email address leaves me open to hundreds of suspicious emails every day. Not one thing (or person!) has been able to sneak into my computer since getting AVG! Wonderful software, from a trusted name.
To Be Thode – Since installing the AVG Internet Security 9.0 on my netbook, I have had no problems. The installation was very easy and there were clear steps to follow. My computer is running fast but is still catching some issues before they become real problems. LinkScanner® is checking web pages when it is most important – right before I click on them. Knowing I am protected before I even get to the page is a huge relief to me.
The Sewing Mom – I do recommend AVG intenet security for all your home computers. It is a solid, easy to use software that can protect my home network from outside attacks. Remember, it doesn’t just scan your email, AVG also scans the sites your visiting on the web to prevent your private information and your computer from being hacked.
Acting Balanced – Several things that impressed me about AVG Security 9.0 were the speed with which it scanned for viruses – I’ve used both Norton and McAfee software and have found their full scans to be disruptive and slow when trying to use the computer, particularly the internet – but not so with AVG. I also like that it scans links before you click on them, not after the damage is done!
Thanks, Mail Carrier – I love how easy it is to use AVG software and how it not only keeps you informed of the security of your computer but that it doesn’t slow things down one bit. Any updates are done automatically, you receive warnings for any suspicious threats and you can even schedule it to scan at a particular time that is convenient. At any point you can browse their window of options to make sure that your computer world is safe and sound.
Bless Their Hearts Mom – And it keeps doing it’s job- everytime you search or run a program, it let’s you know if there is a problem. The pop-up screen tells you to be cautious, to run the other way or go ahead and click enter (if box is all in green). The program is VERY simple to use and it is almost too easy! You think with it being so simple to use, it doesn’t work, but it works GREAT!!
